    Lol does all of CF collectively do crack or something.

    He's going to make more than a full non-tax payer MLE. We will likely only be using a tax payer MLE. Meaning there's not a chance in hell we can afford him.

    I would happily sing and trade for him, with Capela. Suspect Julius anticipates getting more than the $14/$15 million due to Clint next year.

    Does the 125% rule work for S&T?

    $14,896,552 * 125% = $18,620,690 .... which I think would be fair, if a bit pricey.

    That said, as cool as he'd be to have, and as much as we are willing to "throw" Clint into deals, the Rockets need a Clint Capela type, especially defensively and on the boards.

    He’s going to make way way more than that. 21 / 9 / 3 with 56% from two and 34% from three.

    Defense isnt there but he’ll get paid over that.

    He would certainly want more money that we'd be willingly to give. I'd like a Capela, Tucker, Randle frontcout, but it won't happen.

    We have some posters who refuse to accept the fact that good players are not lining up to play for the Rockets peanuts.

    I could see Randle getting 11 plus a year.

    This does not affect the Rockets offseason plans in the slightest.

    It works. Pelicans have a lot of candy to sweeten the deal.

    Why was this posted in the GARM? Rockets have no chance at getting him, just like any other quality free agent.
